Cold November Evening


That's excellent, fantastic light effects. As you say, a very different look.

Good expressive work Barry, I’ve never used them but I know that they are popular!

Beautiful, I really like your style of painting.

This is so vibrant and ‘alive’ Full of atmosphere with those bole strokes

Thank you Lewis, I think we are agreed a very different outcome. Thank you Alan, I started using them because I suffer from asthma and for painting knives they work fine but it’s very difficult to get an equivalent to a turpsy wash.

Thanks to Painful Painter and Diana, I am really enjoying this departure into oils but I will still be doing my watercolours.

Lovely loose painting, full of light and atmosphere, really super.

Impressive technique.

Lovely, Barry. Full of zizz.

Smashing stuff Barry. Love the bold approach and it's the result that matters. Lovely.

Really powerful piece and focal point. I feel very cold and wet looking at this!

Pissaro-esque, if there is such a word. Great stuff.

Fantastic Barry, oils really seem to suit you, this is brimming with vitality, wonderful light.

Great atmosphere and enough suggested detail for the mind to fill in all kinds of sounds and splashes.

Good work, Barry!

Wonderful, evocative atmosphere - you can feel the cold and rain.

Love the way you have painted the dancing light. It really makes your painting come to life. Great brushstrokes Barry and an inspiration to aspire to having a go at painting in a looser style. Will definitely attempt something in water soluble oils.

What a great response to my efforts at a new medium and technique thank you all very much.

This painting takes you there Barry- light, energy, movement and atmosphere.

Hang on Studio Wall

After some progress with my technique with my water mixable oils and painting knives I decided to try a larger board 20”x16”. I chose a subject that I have painted several times in watercolour and it has produced a very different outcome, I just love painting you just go on learning!
